Liam works closely with his clients in order to understand their individual needs and to identify the potential ramifications that may flow from a criminal matter. Armed with this information, he will work together with his client and their family to prepare a strategy which will give them the greatest chances of successfully navigating the matter. Because of his past experience as a police officer and prosecutor, Liam is able to utilise his knowledge of investigative strategies, procedure and policies to ensure his clients receive the best possible outcome.
As a police officer, Liam worked in a number of investigation roles. He initially worked at Kings Cross Local Area Command, primarily investigating drug supply offending. In 2014, he became a police prosecutor, dealing with heavy volume Local Court criminal matters at Burwood Local Court and the Downing Centre Local Court. He was previously accredited as a Senior Prosecutor, with responsibility for coordinating the South Sydney Prosecutions Team and was appointed a Senior Prosecutor for the Serious Drug & Property Offences Team, a team of three prosecutors specifically tasked with prosecuting local court matters that had previously only been heard and determined by the District Court.
Liam finished his prosecuting career as part of the Senior Advocates Group, a select team of prosecutors tasked with overseeing the prosecution of the most serious and high-profile of offending. During his time as a prosecutor, Liam was also responsible for the training and education of dozens of police prosecutors.
